Hotel was ok for a one night stay for a place to sleep. When we pulled into the parking lot the police were escorting an intoxicated man off the property.

Awful, just awful

Would not recommend Mon, Dec 9, 2013
My friend and I booked the hotel for two nights and were rudely awoke our first morning there by drilling and hammering in the room next to ours. When we called the front desk the owner didn't seem to care. The light in our bathroom did not work and it smelled very strongly of urine. We switched rooms and the other wasn't much better. I them got home and unpacked and realized my fake diamond ring was missing from my luggage. Good luck with that one guys! I don't recommend staying here at all. A gutter would probably be better.

Good enough for short stay

Would recommend Sun, Jun 23, 2013
We were looking for a very quick stop-over in Lake Charles and were only planning to sleep there for a few hours before heading home. You get what you pay for, and we knew not to expect too much. Cons: The hotel is old and has all exterior entry doors (and therefore there are cameras everywhere), and the bathroom had a very strong curry smell coming from the vents. The breakfast area for the included breakfast (which we didn't eat) was two small dinette tables in front of the lobby desk, and it looked like there were plastic containers for muffins, etc. The pillows are terrible -- they are so fluffy and "tall" -- but that may be a personal preference. Pros: The room and bathroom were surprisingly clean.There was one hair in a bedsheet, but that wasn't a big deal. The room had a coffee pot, which many upper-end hotels are skipping out on these days. The front desk woman was very nice. And they've updated the rooms with flat-screen TVs.

Time saver

This hotel is only a short drive from the casinos in the area.
